Buddy Young, Jr.:
For me, my family was like, uh, Dances With Jews. Oh sure, we had names for our relatives like they had in that movie.

Buddy Young, Jr.:
Well, we had "Eats With His Hands," "Spits When He Talks," "Makes Noise When He Bends," "Sweats Like a Pig," "Whines In a Cab," "Never Buys Retail," "Shaves His Back."

Billy Crystal plays an old comedian Buddy Young who wants to have what he once had but people seem to have forgotten Buddy.So is it time to retire?Crystal directed this dramatic comedy in 1992 and it is filled with great actors.Crystal in the lead is amazing.David Paymer plays Buddy's brother Stan and Helen Hunt is Annie.The legendary comedian Joseph Levitch, better known as Jerry Lewis, makes a visit as himself in the movie.Mr. Saturday Night is a movie that in parts makes you smile and in parts brings tears to you eyes.
